To various above -
The only statement that Maine has released that makes sense is the one above from Gov Mills, where it says that incoming folks drive to their location and do not visit business establishments or go where there are a lot of people for 14 days. The official statement continues to suggest that someone cross into Maine, then quarantine somewhere in Maine prior to going to the intended rental, house etc. Which makes no sense.
That is why I posted that article.
As far as I know campgrounds are not open yet, rentals as of June 1 seem to be talking about buildings.
Maine is fine with tourists as long as you don’t bring bad habits from elsewhere with you. And IMO understand that as you go up and over on the coast away from Portland there will be an increasing proportion of local individuals who are barely putting up with you. So maybe be more cognizant of local habits in Roque Bluffs than in Kennebunkport.
That said I have seen kayakers in particular manage seriously bonehead moves that leave me shaking my head. The obvious one is to misread a channel, especially when the working boats are coming in at the end of the day. Another is to paddle in the way of a lobster boat pulling traps.
Another one IMO is to go to a working dock piled high with traps and ask to launch your kayak. Unless you know one of the people working fishermen who uses that dock and has issued some kind of invite, I would never bring one of my kayaks to bother folks who are working to make their mortgage.
In general it is a state with a lot of imports doing wonderful things, and at least until this virus a strong and improving cultural economy. It also has a population under high stress form all those imports, like fishing families that can no longer afford to pay the taxes on their waterfront property because the market value has been driven up so high by non-fishing people with deep pockets moving up from Massachusetts, CT etc.
One guy in a nearby town bought the big house and gave the lobster pen and dock that came with the property to the local coop. In full recognition of the strain placed on the fishing community by these changes. Those of us from other areas may think that this earned him a warm relationship with the lobstermen. Last I was told the relationship had improved to one of toleration by the locals in the coop.
I love the state, and had Jim and I decided to move there we would have parked in Portland due to medical facilities and year round cultural access. We would have been somewhat more among our own kind. But I love the rest of the state too, it just comes with some behavioral awareness.
